N: Kind of what you'd expect - it's like the 10 with a kick of sherry.

P: Sherry flavors come through nicely. Not super bold, but it has a nice hint of it.

F: Bit too short. Really wish it lingered longer.

 

Subtly very nice

n:  Dark fruits in a tin bucket.

 

p:  Clearly not a typical Laphraoig but clearly a Laphroaig. There's a sweet berry syrup followed by pepper and oats. The peat overshadows the px after a second, so you can thank Pedro and kiss him goodbye. The finish is nice if you like the iodine profile.

 

Hmmm, I'm flying international soon.

n: smoke, burning clover, cinnamon red hots in the ocean. Strawberry jello scalding in the pan. Heavy on the ripe red fruits and sweet. The sherry influence is really prominent.

 

t: At first the red fruits and the whisky tumble, with the smoke and seabrine winning out midway. It does have a strong phenolic middle (of bandages and iodine) that fits the typical brand profile. The finish is fruity and sweet but not too long; like mixed berry jam with ash at the end. It's a Laphroiag, but a different shade and I like it.

 

Solid B+
